Q. Is it a bigger adjustment then you thought it would be?

A. Honestly, I didn’t go into this with any kind of expectations. If there’s anything I’ve learned in this past year or so, it’s expect the unexpected. So I try to prepare for everything I can and take things as they come, one day at a time. 

Q. How do you feel about the way you have played so far?

A. I’m a very big critic of myself. There are certain things I’m happy about, but there’s not one thing that I can’t do better.

Q. What are you happiest with?

A. Catching the ball…but I mean I there’s always room to improve.

Q. How did you enjoy last night, getting into the pads for the first time?

A. It was a lot of fun, a nice change of pace. We had a beautiful skyline, with a little bit of purple off to the west. The more we’ve been out here the more it feels like football.

Q. How have you been adjusting to the complexities of professional football?

A. Like I said, there’s always still room for improvement. Everyday I’m trying to add another dimension to my game and my skill set. It’s all about studying the tape and learning the tendencies of our guys on defense, and bringing what I learn back to the field.

Q. Not many guys would be able to notice the sunset in their first NFL practice.

A. I mean, when it’s your first time in such a big situation, you notice things that some of the older guys might not see because they’ve gotten used to it. I’m just trying to enjoy every part of this experience.
